3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The last of the 13 beers my wife brought back from Bahamas when visitng last year. And turned out saved the best until last. Bought in Freeport, Bahamas. Pours mahogany brown with a maroon tint. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, chocolate, liquorice, and vanilla. Medium to heavy sweetness, light bitterness. Medium to full body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation. Decent stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle x 2 at Atlantis. Sweet malt and coffee bean nose and dark body which is a bit thin for style. Smooth but really overdone with malt and grains. Hides alcohol well and glad it's 7+ but wouldn't seek it out otherwise.

Bottle aged three days in my Bahamian hotel room. Has an impressive dark pour but an unimpressive sour malty aroma and taste. Roasted malts and barley. Has a dry finish. Thin.
